That was just an example. Problem is not with the site or link....I can view the video through Silverlight ok in Windows XP and other Windows 7 64-bit (with IE8 32-bit) PCs.
Its just this one PC with Win7-64..However it works if I disable UAC.
But on the other PCs it works with UAC enabled

I have Zonealarm installed on the PC with the problem, but when I disable ZA it still wont work. I will try uninsatiing ZA and see i it helps

Yes maybe Zonealarm.
When you still have problems reset the IE (or Browser) settings.

Had the same issue ones.

Good luck

Uninstalled ZA. Problem still exists. But when I disable UAC then it will play. I think its an issue to where it caches the file and UAC does not give it access since I have moved several data and cache folders to another drive. I guess for now I will work with it with UAC disabled and ZA Enabled :)

Thanks for your response.

I dont believe this can be resolved without me putting all Windows data/cache/temp settings back to their default locations. I am awarding Leonie points cause I feel resetting IE settings to default is part of the Windows reset.
